Thank you for the replies.
I suspect that date at the bottom is the latest universal system refresh time across all records in the CRM system. If there is nothing to update in your particular record, nothing will change.I have periodically checked on my application progress and I noticed that there is a date at the bottom that says "last updated". Would you know why that date continues to change every couple of days but nothing on the application is changing. At least nothing that I can see has changed. Is the Admissions Board already reviewing applications?
Thank you Capt MJ.I suspect that date at the bottom is the latest universal system refresh time across all records in the CRM system. If there is nothing to update in your particular record, nothing will change.
The Admissions Board has been meeting since the start of the academic year. Appointments have been going out and will continue to go out even into June.
I am just back from a road trip and one of our stops was USNA for a historical tour . The tour guide actually said on the tour that USNA was contemplating not requiring SAT scores anymore. There was a young man with his parents who mentioned that he was applying for this year because this seems like a really “cool place”, he had not even started the application yet and the tour guide was talking to him saying things like “when you get here , you will stay in Bancroft” and “you really should have taken AP classes”. I thought it was wildly inappropriate for a civilian tour guide to be making comments regarding USNA admissions . She also made a comment regarding female midshipman saying they are “allowed “ to go to USNA now , as if it was a recent development . Then she turned to DD who is at Naval Foundation prep and told her she should think about applying like this young man . The young man who hadn’t even started his application, in January . The whole experience just really rubbed me the wrong way .Nobody here can tell you whether USNA is giving more or less weight to ACT/SAT scores this year. One might be able to evaluate trends in the Class Profile over the years , but that is a lagging indicator. However, if all other things are equal , the Candidate with a higher SAT/ACT will have a better chance than the candidate with the weaker score. (Of course, the qualifier "if all other things are equal" is the great unknown --very rarely are candidates equal in all categories other than College Boards)
Sorry to hear it rubbed you the wrong way. I’ve been on a few of the Yard tours — before and during DD’s time there — and never noticed language such as this. Strongly suggest you assume positive intent here. It seems she was trying to be encouraging and optimistic. Perhaps a bit clumsy, but certainly not ill-intended.The whole experience just really rubbed me the wrong way .
I am cranky after the long car ride home . I just felt it was inappropriate for a tour guide to be giving admissions information on the tour and a bit misogynistic for her to assume that DD should follow the lead of a male who obviously had very little idea of how extensive the application process is . We have not visited USNA prior and were very much looking forward to this tour and it was disappointing . I’m sure the tour guide had best intentions .Sorry to hear it rubbed you the wrong way.

These are volunteers who put a lot of time into learning USNA’s history and culture. Some have Navy connections, some don’t. But I do believe they all mean well.
Okay, thank you!The email isn't a guarantee. I didn't receive one for my appointment. You will eventually receive a physical copy of the offer in the mail later after the electronic version has been sent to you in your portal.
Me either.I'm not aware of any "legal requirement" to allow for Members of Congress to notify appointees. It's done as a courtesy -- want to keep MOC happy!
